Abstract : In this paper, a tribal village in India was examined, where a community farming model for cultivation of lemon-grass is being proposed. To ensure effective implementation of the program, two mathematical problems were identified, for facility location and vehicle routing. Solutions to the problems were found, using a geographic information system; the results obtained were compared with a common routing heuristic and a convenient location for the facility. Findings include savings of about 14 percent in the transportation costs.
